“This little gem from the BBC is something of a rarity” British Classic Comedy
The hilarious BAFTA winning sitcom was inspired by the rising divorce rates following the sexual liberations of the 1960s. Former BBC Broadcast Executive Sir Bill Cotton once cited My Wife Next Door as evidence that with the right treatment, any subject could be made funny. According to the Guardian the series made the concept of divorce watchable by treating the couple with affection and respect.
Also starring Diana King (The Very Merry Widow, Shillingbury Tales), Mollie Sugden (Are You Being Served?) and Richard Waring (Not in Front of the Children), the series was created by the great Brian Clemens OBE (The Avengers, The Professionals) and written by Richard Waring (Not in Front of the Children, And Mother Makes Three).
